Book Description

Sara Baase presents in her book Gift of Fire, A: Social, Legal, and Ethical Issues for Computing Technology a comprehensive and well-balanced investigation of the social, legal, philosophical, ethical, political, constitutional, and economic implications of computing technology, as well as the debates that are sparked by these implications. Baase tackles the difficulties that readers will encounter both as members of a technology society and as professionals in computer-related disciplines. He does so by providing a perspective from the point of view of an objective computer scientist and by providing historical context for many of the concerns. Educating future generations of computer professionals so that they are aware of the repercussions of their work and how it fits into the fabric of society as a whole is a fundamental objective. This literature does not direct students to any particular conclusions, but it does inspire readers to think about the ethical and philosophical implications of the themes being discussed. The material in the 5th Edition has been brought up to date to include new themes and examples, obsolete information has been eliminated, and the order in which certain topics are presented has been rearranged. All of it has been updated with brand new material, including recent articles on themes that are currently popular, including drones and driverless automobiles.
